Augustino is the very charming owner of this hotel, which is perfectly
situated near the old historic centre of Genova. The rooms have several
sizes, we stayed in a smaller one, but still good value for money. The
rooms are clean and the furniture is ikea and new. Perfect spot for
shopping or site seeing. You can park the car in the garage of the
shopping mall coin opposite the hotel for 12 euro's a day.
